SANDWYRM ERRORS _ MOTIONS
NFT SERIES / AUG.2021 / HICETNUNC
We only had the national TV program at home growing up which started in the morning and ended in the afternoon. The rest of the time, the screen played a faint beep over SMPTE colour bands. I would sit and stare at it thinking that if I stared long enough, something would happen. The world moved around me as I sat there absorbing the colours.
This body of work, Sandwyrm Errors, has particular significance to me because so much of my childhood took place while watching SMPTE bands. Most times I watched in silence, sometimes I hummed to the beep, or even did my homework in front of it. Adult conversations and quarrels seeped through my consciousness as this happened.
I wanted to reimagine the SMPTE bands to thank them for filling so much of my day, and being my inadvertent introduction to digital design. This collection contains stills and motions.
